This is beautiful to see both during the day and during the evening. If you can you should visit it both lights. Well worth popping by.

I never thought when I was last in Berlin that I would ever stand under or walk through this magnificent landmark. It is iconic and a symbol that will endure long after those of us who remember the wall will have gone. A must see for all visiting Berlin.

The Brandenburg Gate is simply amazing. It carries a lot of memories especially because the wall used to run just in front of it. Taking a picture of it is a must both during the day and night. The giant Christmas tree in the Pariser Platz adds a lot of charm to each picture. You can enjoy the view of the gate while sipping a coffee at the Starbucks located just a few steps away! Enjoy it!

Its the symbol of Berlin. A place to definitely visit. Very crowded, but to be expected. Took photos and walked about. Nice tree here at Christmas time. Worth a visit. A walk around the corner from reichstag building and holocaust memorial in the other direction.

Simply stunning. Plenty of info and history nearby. The Reichstag building is a very short walk away which is also a must do.
